Marlins manager Guillen's seat even hotter after recent comments

Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is reportedly angry at Ozzie Guillen over comments the manager made about him recently and may lead to his firing, the Palm Beach Post reported Monday.

The newspaper reported that Loria did not appreciate being "called out" by Guillen on Friday.

"If Jeffrey doesn't think I'm doing the job I should do ... it's not the first time he's fired a manager," Guillen said. "Look yourself in the mirror and ask why so many (expletive) managers come through here."

The Marlins have had six managers since 2002.

Guillen has made several comments recently about his job safety and others around him. The Post reported that it is not clear exactly which comments angered Loria.

Guillen said last weekend, "When you are in last place you need a better manager, better general manager, better owner, a better everything when you are a last-place team because we all failed.

"Whoever works for the Marlins and denies that he should be fired is full of (expletive). My coaches, myself, the front office, my players, we're all involved in this thing. We all failed. And we've got to be better. Hopefully we learn by the mistakes we made and we move on.

"I can see good things happening soon. How soon is it going to be? The players will dictate how soon it's going to be. Everybody in this ball club should look at themselves in the mirror."

The Post's report stated that a source indicated that there was a 75 percent chance Guillen would be fired.

It was reported by several Florida media outlets last week that baseball operations president Larry Beinfest's job was safe but Guillen may be on the way out.

But USA Today reported Thursday that Beinfest was going to be let go and Guillen would keep his job.
